The acclaimed author of Song for the Basilisk and Winter Rose weaves a beautiful, entrancing fantasy of a powerful knight who must follow the threads of reality and illusion--to the truth...As a loyal knight in service to the king, Cyan Dag is honored to attend the royal wedding--until he receives a strange warning from an old woman. "Watch her dance," she says about the king's beautiful new bride. "She forgets herself in the music and lets her true self show. You will see the sixth finger on her hands, the scales on her feet, her distorted shadow, her terrible eyes..." And so, Cyan is compelled to leave the kingdom on a mission--to learn whether the new queen is truly the king's beloved...or a dangerous, sorcerous imposter.
